You just had your first child and need to upgrade to a nicer, newer sedan. Your teenager just graduated high school and you want to send them off to college with a dependable car. Or maybe your family has outgrown your current vehicle and you're looking for more space in a minivan or SUV. No matter the reason why, Vern Eide Honda Sioux City has the solution. Honda has some of the best family cars on the road today due to unmatched safety features, superior fuel efficiency, and amenities ranging from comfort to entertainment. Whether you need a sedan, SUV, or minivan, we are here to help with a list best cars for families in Iowa.
We nominate the Honda Accord as the best car for a family. In addition to being a cool, stylish sedan, the Accord has won Car and Driver's 10Best award* a record-breaking 34 times thanks to its efficiency, design, and world-class safety features. And speaking of safety, the every Accord trim level comes equipped with the Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assist technologies for absolute peace of mind when the family is along for the ride.
The best family SUV we can recommend would either be the Honda CR-V or Honda Pilot, depending on how many passengers you will have on a day-to-day basis. Although HR-V is an excellent SUV for a new driver like your teenager or college student, the CR-V and Pilot are better suited for hauling both kids and cargo.
If your family is growing and you need room for both passengers and their gear, the Honda Pilot is tough to beat. This third-row SUV has seating for up to eight, tri-zone automatic climate control, and an available Advanced Rear Entertainment System to keep everyone smiling. The Pilot has a ton of easy-to-access cargo area courtesy of the 60/40 split, flat-folding 3rd-row bench seat and its 3.5-liter V-6 engine makes towing a breeze.
If you have a smaller family but still need the cargo space, CR-V is the SUV for you. Not only does its compact size make it easier to handle and more fuel efficient, but it also has enough cargo area for family getaways. CR-V is the perfect balance between daily commuter and weekend warrior, without making any compromises.
We recommend the Honda Odyssey as the minivan you should buy, but Kelley Blue Book probably said it best stating, "From its functionality and roominess to its history of reliability and value in the near and long-term, the Honda Odyssey remains among the smartest and economical choices available for busy families." And they weren't the only automotive experts that were impressed by this minivan. Last year's Odyssey took home the following awards and accolades:
As icing on top of the cake, Odyssey can be equipped with an Advanced Rear Entertainment System, CabinWatch® Rear Seat Monitor, CabinTalk® In-Car PA System Through Headphones, and HondaVAC® built-in vacuum cleaner.
With a quick glance at the features you are able to see Honda makes safe family vehicles. Every Honda comes standard equipped with a rearview camera, Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control, ACE™ Body Structure, and Honda Sensing suite (available for Fit and HR-V). Not only are these vehicles safe, but Honda vehicles are also a smart investment, boasting impressive ALG Residual Values after both three and five years. Now you can see why you should buy a new Honda. And if you aren't looking to buy a new vehicle, Vern Eide Honda Sioux City has you covered with a great, used inventory and Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Honda vehicles that come with many-if not all-of the same benefits we outlined in this review.
